User eerielinux writes about what lies ahead in the year 2020, discussing his experiences with RISC-V hardware and FreeBSD on SPARC64 architecture, ARM64 (Cavium ThunderX), HardenedBSD, illumos, and others. Check out their blog below to read about what’s in store for the new decade.

When you read this, the old year will be over (well, depending on the time zone you live in). If we’re lucky, this might be the year to get our hands on the first affordable RISC-V hardware that can actually run a Unix-like operating system. It should definitely be the year to get interesting devices like the ARM64-based PinePhone. And it also means that Python 2 is finally dead.
